I like Facebook these days. Their brilliant algorithms are increasingly complex, their advertisers more and more subtle in their campaigns. The upshot (and upside) is that Facebook feels more and more like that awkward thing at a party: you’re talking to a friend and this person you don’t know and comes up and sort of inserts themselves into your conversation, mouthing words that are vaguely relevant to what you WERE talking about before you were interrupted, and then before you know it, both you and your friend are drifting off in another direction. Like that.
So, why do I like it. Because it’s helped me kick it to the curb for large chunks of time. This is good. The actual amount of focused, concentrated time in my days is increasing.
I’ll be doing a couple of workshops in the next few months which also helps to focus my time in the studio. All good, all good.
